ABR Statement on Medical Practice Autonomy

ABR Statement on Medical Practice Autonomy

Criminalization of evidence-based care that is medically indicated is injudicious, represents a significant transgression of the sacrosanct bond between patient and provider, and encroaches upon the obligations of physicians to practice medicine in the best interests of their patients. The American Board of Radiology (ABR) endorses a patient’s fundamental right to medical care provided by physicians and other health care providers in a manner that represents a shared decision agreed upon between a patient/guardian and a health care provider. The medical profession exists to serve patients, and medical professionals must be the arbiters of care. The ABR recognizes and supports the professional expertise of our candidates and diplomates in establishing appropriate standards and boundaries of care.
